The Washington Monument is offensive and may just need to be removed, per this week’s outrage.
A woke committee reporting to Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser recommended that dozens of historical monuments, schools, parks, and government buildings should be changed. The committee cited “racism” and mentioned the Washington Monument and Jefferson Memorial as among the problems.
To no surprise, Tuesday, Bowser said she looks forward to advancing the recommendations.
Sometimes these requests, statements and tweets are almost too good to be real life. You wonder if a comedy writer is behind it all trolling the left.
If not, according to this committee, the following names are egregious humans:
Hey D.C.—they’re not your monuments to rename or remove.

George Washington, huh? Thomas Jefferson, too? That damn Benjamin Franklin.
Senator Lindsey Graham summed it up:
“Just when you thought it couldn’t get crazier….it did,” Graham tweeted. “The idea of DC renaming monuments to our Founding Fathers — who created the greatest country on Earth — is beyond offensive. Yet another reason DC should never be a state!”
It just got crazier.
So crazy, even perpetually offended John Oliver didn’t see it coming.
This John Oliver segment aged poorly.

It appears “somewhere,” doesn’t exist.
At this rate, odds are there will soon be a push to change the name that appears in front of “D.C.” A few come to mind that would satisfy this mob: Sharpton, AOC, Winfrey, and Cuomo (Andrew, not his brother). Miss any?
I’m also curious if there will be demands to remove the title of “president” from 90% of our past leaders? Starting with Donald Trump, obviously. Or, as the NBA did, maybe we will retire the term altogether?
And why stop there?
